For the third year our photographic group has met at The Rag for a Christmas meal. As a group you need to book early in the year to ensure being able to eat here. Three groups were there for lunch on the day we went, but the service is excellent. No waiting for vegetables or trying to sort out who... More

I've always wanted to go to the Rag and was delighted to go for a Christmas Meal as a group of 10. Food was fantastic, service was great and my only niggle was the quality of the included house wine wasn't great. Would I come here again? Absolutely, without a doubt - but would be more selective about the drinks... More

I, have just visited the Rag Restaurant in Rawnsley for the first time, and was very impressed. The service was very good, with a very short time to wait for our meal. The quality of our meal was excellent and the choice on the menu was second to none.

We dined here for Sunday lunch with friends, and the only thing I can say is wonderful ! Having experienced most of the menus ( bar meals, 2 for £30 and the a la carte), the food has never disappointed. My only criticism would be, sometimes the service is a little slower than I'd like.
